Case No. 1-1-1086979421 Hi I Recently purchased a Trend Micro Maximum security Program and planned to use it in May 2017 when my current current year ends. I keep getting Email asking me why I haven't activated the program. Is it OK bof me to wait until May to activate this new program? Also, I didn't want the automatic renewal option. I believe I was told that I don't request this. Is this true?

I can't help you with your question about May renewal, but one of the helpful Trend Micro reps should be able to.

As far as auto-renew, you can turn that off. On you TM scan start page you'll see a renewal or expiration date. Click that, sign in using your master password, and you'll see where you can turn auto-renew off. I hope this helps a little.

Hi Tim, thank you for answering.

Hi @terry10744a, welcome to Trend Micro Community! 

To answer your activation question, yes, it's OK that you can wait until May to activate your new Serial Number!

For your auto renew question, as @woodartisan55 mentioned, after activating your license, you can also manually canceling Auto Renewal. We have a support document which describes how to cancel Auto Renewal:
Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Auto-Renew - refer to "Disabling or Canceling Auto Renewal"

Please let us know if you encounter other issues or questions with Trend Micro product in the future. Thank you!
